The mirror shows no reflection
Yet there is a "shadow mourner" 
that no one cares to see
let alone me.
Siblings rule when they are alive.
yet when one dies,
the world only sees
the parents cry.
The tears in sissy's eyes
must be dried.
Someone has to serve the chicken
the macaroni salad and the pie.
Not to say of cleaning up the mess 
after everyone says their goodbyes.
Yet the beast
of grief
still lies within.
Crying, dying,
caged, with rage
just waiting,
to be let out
to be held and heard.
